The Book by Karla Marie Roldan

The Book 

When you walked in,
I felt that the time was finally right.
This is it. I may have found the one.
And it doesn’t take long
Before your hand landed on mine.
After a long time of waiting,
Someone finally found me –
Someone took a chance –
Someone took me home.
It was the best day of my life.
And every day,
Every single day
We would spend all our days exploring –
Satisfied in each other’s company.
Everything is perfect
With your eyes fixed on mine
Searching the words that I have
Traveling through my rough edges
And exploring everything that is in me
I got a taste of forever.
But I figured out that forever
Doesn’t seem long.
Forever may still end
And it did
As I found my words
Floating and losing
Not able to hold you anymore.
And I thought
Maybe it won’t last long either.
And I found myself
In the corner of your world
Waiting for a day
Or maybe two
Or maybe three.
Every single day,
I found myself waiting
For those eyes
For those hands
That once never let me go
To bring me back in your arms.
But those eyes
And those hands
They are fixed somewhere else
They are fixed on things
That is not me.
I can’t reach them now.
But your beautiful smile,
You are happy – still glowing
In something that is not me.
Now as I sit in the corner
Watching you – wondering
if forever can happen twice
Yet I am still glad, I am still here
Still fixed my eyes on you
With all the words
And the adventures
That you once loved and longed for.
I am still here – hoping for the time
These same words can bring you back.
Until then,
In this corner of your world
I’ll stay
Along with the other things forgotten
I will wait
I will wait for the hands
That once found me
To find me again.
